In the other forums, it was posted that one could make a LAN server for WoW.  Also, Demin figured out how do to make one run.  Now for the real question:

Can you set up the LAN server to be used via TCP/IP or something in order to play remotely?

If anyone else wants to give it a shot, here is the link.

Bad link, yo.  Looks like the URL was abbreviated from wherever you got it from.

Odd... I got it from the old forums.  Oh well, just head there and check it out if you are interested.

Apparently there is a way to set up a WoW emulator server that can be connected to via a non-LAN connection.

If you are interested in trying one, here is the link for the forums.  I'm looking into it, but I don't think I have the hardware to support a server.  Even a server with just us.

yes you can but you must know the ip address of the person who will be hosting the server. Also if you have Service pack2, broadband router or firewall you may have to be familair with port forwarding.

essentially you would put the ip address of the person hosting into the realmlist(make a backup for when you want to connect to the real deal)

Demin

edit

also remeber that since these arent offical servers alot of stuff is missing, most races are incomplete, hunters are broken(no pets), some mounts are broken, not all quest iplemented, and some crafts are broken also.

I have read that some of them have edited their Database to include new quests (yes you can make them if you figure out how), new NPCs and items.

I might give it a shot, but I have no chance of hosting unless I upgrade... and that ain't gonna happen until the wife gets a job.
